Colour shines through in new crown trade guide

Crown Trade has gone back to the drawing board to refresh its inspirational colour card.

Reflecting its position as the industry experts in colour, the UK paint manufacturer has poured all its expertise into ‘Colour Schemes and Inspiration’ a new guide packed with ideas, insight and inspiration to help specifiers select the perfect shade.

Taking centre stage in the booklet are 150 of the most popular colours in the Crown range. These are all placed into colour families – namely whites, creams, neutrals, yellows, greens, blues, reds and greys – for ease of reference.

There’s then a description of the unique characteristics of each colour family and colour schemed roomsets illustrating each group in inspirational environments.

Information on factors including light, space and colour psychology are also featured, along with guidance on Crown Trade’s colour mixing system and MyRoomPainter App.

Available for free download from the App Store or Google Play, this app enables specifiers to take pictures of an area to see exactly how a finished project will look in whatever shade is chosen.

Debbie Orr, Crown Paints Marketing Manager for Trade brands, said: “Colour Schemes and Inspiration’ pulls together a wide-range of guidance to help make the selection of shades easy and effective.

“We’ve used our knowledge and expertise, and considered the latest trends, to produce this guide, which ultimately helps specifiers get confident with colour.

“The impact colour makes on our buildings cannot be overstated. It defines space, indicates function, influences mood and creates identity.

“It’s an interesting subject and one that we’ve touched on more in-depth than in a usual colour card, to help people make informed choices.”

All the shades featured in the guide are available in Crown Trade’s high quality, professional finishes.

These include Crown Trade Clean Extreme, which is recognised throughout the industry for delivering a long-lasting finish that will stand the test of time and keep a fresh-looking appearance.

Its high technology formulation provides a surface that is not only wipeable, but has the real bonus of offering a truly scrubbable finish.

Marks and stains can be easily removed to ensure an attractive look is in place for the long term. This ensures a ‘just painted’ appearance is maintained, and surfaces are returned to their pristine condition time and time again.
